Corofin/Ruan  7-7   Tulla  5-5

    A strong second half performance saw Corofin/Ruan overcome the challenge of a gallant Tulla side in the U-14 B Final, played in Clarecastle on Friday, June 7th. 

Tulla got off to a great start and led 3-1 to 0-0 after 10 minutes. Two well taken Ashley Brohan goals reduced the deficit and Corofin/Ruan only trailed by 5 points at half-time, 3-5 to 2-3.

Tulla scored a fourth goal early in the second half they looked to be on the road to victory. 

Corofin/Ruan improved their performance throughout the field and goals from Colin Haugh (2), Gearóid Cahill, Seán O'Brien and Kevin Keane put Corofin/Ruan into the lead. 

Tulla were awarded a penalty but they failed to convert this and that ended their chances of coming back into contention in this final. Corofin/Ruan ran out deserving winners on a final score 7-7 to 5-5. 

Amid great scenes of celebration, joint-captains Gearóid Cahill and Colin Haugh accepted the cup from Bord na nÓg Iomáint Chairman Martin Reynolds for the second year in a row.
